1  Kerri Russell in Amy Butler in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by Caffinated Crafter on: August 25, 2008 11:01:08 AM
Hey 'yall!  i saw Kerri Russell wearing this bag a while ago, and just saw it again today... which reminded me that i was in love with this style back then, and am still longing for it!  i see that it has a leather strap- almost like a leather belt was used to make the strap.  I don't know what kind of pattern to use for this, and i definitely don't think my sewing machine will stand up to sewing leather on top of interfacing on top of fabric!! 

i was thinking of just using the Amy Butler Birdie Sling pattern with this fabric, but i just don't know... Do any of you have some ideas, or if you've seen anyone attempt this bag?

2  Breakfast at Tiffany's stitch marker love! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Caffinated Crafter on: August 24, 2008 07:32:53 AM
i posted this over at the polymer clay board, but i thought it would be a disservice to my knitting group if i did not post it up here, too! 

i made these little charms while i was searching for enough stitch markers to knit my Clapotis.  Now that i'm in the decrease section, i've dropped enough stitches and markers to showcase these babies here!  i made them out of Fimo, and in 30 minutes they were out of the toaster oven and on the needles!  You can see from the picture that we have:  Holly Golightly's eye mask, Paul Varjack's "9 Lives", a Tiffany's Box, Croissant, and Holly's black hat with silk scarf!  très distingué!

i sat down to make stitch markers this week, and this is the result of what happens if you craft while watching your favorite movie!!  ...Breakfast at Tiffany's stitch markers!!  i made them out of Fimo! Here you have Holly Golightly's sleep mask, a croissant, Paul Varjack's "9 Lives", a Tiffany's box, and lastly, the pièce de résistance, her black hat with silk scarf!

I'm always top banana in the shock department!

time to brag. about my awesome swap partner, Aspenwall.  i don't know how she did it, maybe she has ESP, but she read my sewing mind.  not only is her sewing impeccable, her attention to detail amazing, but she picked out some really sweet amy butler fabrics for me!!!!!!!!!!  i was definitely spoiled by her generosity!  THANK YOU! LUV YOU!!!!  so now you can all share in the eye candy...

oooooo here it is- i have barely even begun to tear into this package and i am in love already...

Miss Kitty in front of my brand new bag!  i LOVE IT! i love the flowers! i love the lining! i love the contrasting straps!

Fun and patterned ribbon!!  and hand-made cording/piping!  i've never used this before, never even knew about it before this swap, and i'm so excited to add this to my sewing repertoire! 

and here are oodles and oodles of yummy amy butler fabrics!  i already know what i'm going to do with them- i am going to sew them up into little birds to make this awesome mobile: http://www.spoolsewing.com/blog/2008/05/16/bird-mobile/ love it!  and the amy butler birdie sling pattern? well i think that goes without saying- BRAND NEW BAG!

now, lastly we have my camera hog of a cat, miss kitty, again, posing with my brand new reversible AMY BUTLER apron!  i don't know how my glorious partner, Aspenwall did this, but i love it- it's exactly what i would have made for myself!  it's scary how perfect my swap partner is...

thanks again, Aspenwall!! you RULE!!!
